Thailand’s Constitutional Court has rejected the ombudsmen’s petition asking the court to rule on the legitimacy of the National Council for Peace and Order appointing a committee to select senators.

 

In the petition, the ombudsmen challenged the legitimacy of NCPO Order No 1/2562, pointing out that it might violate Section 812 of the Constitution because the order was not published in the Royal Gazette.

 

The ombudsmen also pointed out that one of the senator selection committee members was later found to be a sponsor of a political party that fielded candidates in the March 24th general election and whose MPs were involved in nominating a candidate in the election of the Prime Minister.
